Jan Phillips is an extraordinarily creative, insightful, clear presenter

"Jan Phillips is an extraordinarily creative, insightful, clear presenter who can keep any audience riveted with mind-blowing facts and research, with colorful stories and anecdotes, and with wisdom garnered from diverse contexts around the world. She is unquestionably one of the best presenters I have experienced in my 25 years in higher education, and, on top of that, her presentations and workshops range across an incredible array of fascinating topics -- creativity, leadership, spirituality, entrepreneurship, original thinking, personal and social transformation, training, self-expression, photography. She can bring both meaningful learning and sincere joy to any university context. If you seek a speaker who can captivate your school, department, unit, or other university context, and also bring real, practical ideas that lead to satisfying transformation, you can't do better than Jan."

Expect the unexpected when you encounter Jan Phillips

"Expect the unexpected when you encounter Jan Phillips....Her varied skills, life experiences, and insights provides a foundation for creative change.  She is a master at listening to what you say, speaking her truth.  This in turn guides you to your truth, sometimes in unexpected ways!  Her sense of knowing, her humor, her photography and song, are gifts she willingly shares. The information I learned and the modeling I witnessed in her workshop has propelled me to reclaim my creative self, to share my wisdom, and to have fun in the process!"

The universal response to Jan’s day long presentation was so enthusiastic!

"The universal response to Jan's day long presentation of "The Word, The Image, The Story: Tools of Transformation was so enthusiastic!  Jan is an inspirational speaker and leader who has the ability to engage and encourage others' creative processes.  Through poetry, compelling images, stories, and invitations to explore one's own inner wealth of experience, she was able to draw out even those who were convinced they were not "creative"!  The time she spent with us was too short!"
